[httperf] RE: HTTP PUT with 50 KB file

I took a very quick look at the source code, I think the issue is a static buffer is used to hold the content. If that is the case, then a quick fix would be to change (in the parse_config() function in src/gen/wsesslog.c):
(or another value that will be larger than any content you'd like to POST).
If this is indeed the root cause, then a proper fix would be needed in the source code.

Subject: [httperf] HTTP PUT with 50 KB file
Using httperf, I am attempting to execute an HTTP PUT to a web server for 50 KB of data. I am using the httperf command as shown below referencing the file 'httperfPut_50KB_asciiRandom.txt' which contains 50 KB of data in the 'contents' section. However, httpperf does not send all the 50 KB of data with a single PUT and subsequent continuation packets. Instead, httperf sends a single HTTP PUT with a content length of 9943 bytes and 4 subsequent continuation packets transmitting a total of about 10 KB of the data, and then executes HTTP GET's for the rest of the info specified in the 'contents' field from the 'httperfPut_50KB_asciiRandom.txt' file. Is there a maximum number of bytes that can be transmitted by httperf with a PUT. I tried increasing the send buffer but this did not help. Any insight would be much appreciated.
/share/tools/bin/httperf --server=myserver.example.com --uri=/myFile.txt --method=PUT --port=8080 --wsesslog=1,0,httperfPut_50KB_asciiRandom.txt --print-reply
The httperfPut_50KB_asciiRandom.txt file is formatted as follows with 50 KB of data in the contents field (all information is on the same line):
